    IDT audio software memory leak on Windows 7 (x64)

    BoydRice

      After several hours working, stacsv64.exe process starting to eat more and more memory. It can eat more than 1 GB of ram! And this behaviour was noticed by me long time ago and still present in last drivers release.

       

      mb Intel DG45ID, Win7pro x64 russian with latest updates and latest intel drivers.

          Based on what you've done as troubleshooting, I'd say, try the following, just to be 100% sure:

           

          1. Remove the audio driver from Programs and Features (Control Panel).

           

          2. Just to be 100% sure, restart the system into BIOS by pressing <F2> during the boot process.  Once in the BIOS setup utility, press <F9> to restore BIOS default settings.  Reset any customized BIOS settings. Clear all DMI event logs by setting the option to "Enable", which is located in the Advanced/Event Log Configuration section of the BIOS Setup utility.  Press <F10> to save the new settings and reboot the system.

           

          3. Once the Operating System loads back up, proceed updating the BIOS to the most current 0127 version:

          Note: Once the update is done, please, restart the system into BIOS and repeat the following:

          Press <F9> to restore BIOS default settings.  Reset any customized BIOS settings. Clear all DMI event logs by setting the option to "Enable", which is located in the Advanced/Event Log Configuration section of the BIOS Setup utility.  Press <F10> to save the new settings and reboot the system.

           

          4. Re-install the latest audio driver:

          5. Test.

           

          Hope this helps!
